Errant Cabbies Irk Tourism Ministry

It has lately been an expensive ride for visitors travelling from KL International Airport (KLIA) in Sepang to the Kuala Lumpur city centre.

And this is not just annoying to the visitors, who feel the taxi drivers have fleeced them, but also to the Tourism Ministry, reported China Press.

The paper said irresponsible cabbies had been charging exorbitant fares for trips between KLIA and the city.

Deputy Tourism Minister Datuk Donald Lim said
a Japanese tourist had complained that a taxi driver charged RM300 to take him from the airport to a city ho-tel.

“A friend told me that he had to pay RM120 in taxi fare from KLIA to Damansara,” he added, alleging that this was due to the inefficient enforcement of the Commercial Vehicle Licensing Board.
